Dernière Rénovation interrupts the Tour de France at the 10th stage: „We must stop the mad race towards our annihilation“

July 12, 2022 – 9 citizens supporting Dernière Rénovation interrupted the 10th stage of the Tour de France between Morzine and Megève at Magland, to stop the crazy race towards the destruction of our society. 

We can no longer remain spectators of the ongoing climate disaster. We have 989 days left to save our future, our humanity.

The finish line is a ravine and we accuse our government and in particular the President of the Republic of condemning us to death. The effects of announcement, the pitiful effects of language on the alleged ecological „revolution“ of the government are intolerable and criminal. It is necessary to change policy, and to start -immediately- with the global energy renovation of buildings. 

The Tour de France was disrupted for 17 minutes and the race was stopped for more than 15 minutes.

Alice (32) and three other citizens had a „We have 989 days left“ t-shirt and a link – – echoing Alizée’s action at Roland Garros on June 3rd. Dernière Rénovation’s sports disruption actions are part of an international Civil Resistance movement, the A22 Network.

Alice: „I’d rather not get to that point. I’d rather be with my family, sitting on my couch watching the Tour de France, while the government does its job. But that’s not the reality.“

„The reality is that the world towards which politicians are sending us is a world in which the Tour de France will no longer exist. In this world, we will be busy fighting to feed ourselves and to save our families. Under these conditions we will face wars and mass famines. We must act and enter into civil resistance today to save what remains to be saved.“

„What do you expect me to do? Stand by the side of the road and watch my life go by as I watch the cyclists go by? No, I have decided to act and interfere to avoid the worst episode of suffering and create a new world. Because everything can still change.“
